I actually started writing this last night but for some reason it wouldn't upload...

Just got back to my hotel room after the Sonia Rykiel show. It was so amazing, the models were all full of energy (rumours that a few glasses of champagne helped) and everything was so beautiful and glamourous.
It was held in the shop and the excitement started outside as lights flashed imitating paparazzi from inside the store. Crowds gathered to watch through the windows.
Inside the shop had been transformed into a disco, with mirror balls hanging from the ceiling and silver oversized sequins scattered all over the floor. When the music started (with Anita Wards' 70's classic Ring my Bell) the models emerged down the stairs to literally dance and whoop around the shop in which the audience were spread.

I bought myself a new camera yesterday, after my Sony died, thinking that this would make me a photographer. Sadly not, it seems the main problem is me, but I've done my best and all the looks will be on Vogue/Style soon so make sure you look through them all properly somewhere else.

In other news I finally dyed my hair red, and after my boss kindly lent me her Marc Jacobs coat and a pair of Marni shoes when I didn't have time to run back to my hotel before the Rykiel show I tried to take blogger style photos of myself. But I've decided that really you don't need to see me, so just take my word for it that ginger is the way celeb spots of this evening were indeed the ginger one from Girls Aloud (Nicola). Also spotted George lamb of Big Brother's Little Brother fame at Cafe De Flore.

Sorry if this is all complete rambling - I've been up since 6.30am to get the Eurostar and I'm pooped!

  1. I am so jealous of you, I wish I had the luck to go to a Sonia Rykiel show. It does sound like you had fun, though, despite the exhaustion!
